  • Who is my academic adviser?

    It depends. If you are an undergraduate, we have professional advisers on staff to serve you. You will be assigned to an adviser by the first letter of your last name. Click here to see our undergraduate advisers. If you are a graduate business student, Ray Frederick will be your adviser.
  • I want to find a course description.  Where do I go?

    There are a couple of ways to find out the full course descriptions in the Academic Catalog.  First, the official version can be found through your MYUB Portal or your MYUB/TOWSON Portal. Once you enter the portal, go to "My Student Center." On that page, you'll see on the right-hand side a tab that says "Search for Classes." Click on it and proceed to the tab that reads "Browse Course Catalog." Once you're in, search for the subject and number. If you don't have access to the portal, you can go directly to the PDF version of the Academic Catalog. There you will need to use the "find" function to locate your course.
  • To whom do I speak with when I have a questions about a particular academic problem?

    We recommend that you first speak to either your professor or academic adviser for any particular problem. After that, you would need to see the Department Chair. If you don't get results with the department chair, then you can make an appointment with the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs and Student Services
  • When do semester grades get posted?

    It depends on the semester. You can always find that information on the Academic Calendar. If for some reason your grades are not posted by the due date, then contact the Department Chair of your professor. If for some reason you can't contact them, you can always call the Office of the Dean.
